- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date June 15, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “did not ensure that residents receive adequate supervision and assistive devices to prevent accidents. Specifically, the facility failed to implement interventions for a resident following falls.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Admission Fall Risk Evaluation that revealed the resident “was a high fall risk.” The resident’s Care Plan addressed the fall risk and provided interventions including anticipating meeting the resident’s needs, ensuring that the call light was within reach, ensuring that the resident or appropriate footwear, and to keep needed items including water within reach.
A Nursing Note documented that the resident “was found in the room on the floor in front of a wheelchair.” The resident “was assessed for pain and injury and transferred from the floor to the bed.” There were no injuries noted, and the patient denied being in pain or having an injury. The nursing staff initiated neurological checks.
A second incident occurred twenty-two days later and was documented in the Progress Note by the Director of Nursing who stated that the resident “was found sitting on the floor in front of a wheelchair in the room. The patient slid from the wheelchair to the floor while trying to propel [themselves]. Physical therapy to do a wheelchair evaluation.”
A few months later, a facility licensed nursing staff member documented in the Progress Note that they heard the patient calling out. The staff member found the resident “lying next to the bed” with a hematoma to the right eyebrow with an abrasion noted.”
